I'm not sure you can count on reproducing at all. I tried to help
someone with a way to "glob" certain things using wildcards and some
bash options. On my 2.05b (installed per the book) all worked. On his,
he never could get the same results, even running the same commands. I
don't know why and he had to move on to other things.

I suspect you may have one of those situations here.
